"Business is a little off at the moment."

Yep. I'm the Village-idiot in-Chief, and the Trolls think I'm bi-polar. And in this case, I cannot promote myself and others any further. I feel like that would be rubbing "IT" in your faces. And, I only speak for myself.

What to do now? Nothing, as usual, but it's free. Here's more of my work on a show for free...

...matrixing this Eyes of The World, and I suggest listening to it. This one is beautiful and jazzy. Blows me away, it's my "Taper's Choice". TURN IT UP!

Dec 18, 1973 matrix of Adam G's tapes

The AUD tape is so good, it sounds like a SBD. The taper had Garcia's and the band's permission to record, and was able to record very close to the stage. It doesn't appear to circulate very much, although some known dat copies were made in the mid-1990s. This is from a transfer the taper did in 1998, burned to CD.

The AUD sounds better to me than the SBD. I can personally tell you, as the matrixing engineer, the SBD mix adds wonderfully to this AUD: more high-end fidelity noticeable on drums and cymbals; more/better vocals at the top end of their dynamic range; and, there's a "much better mix with Keith" UP in the right channel on the SBD (most noticeable in the matrix). Also note, the matrix tracking is the complete show. This one is for the Smithsonian Institute.

You're a hobbyist with a passion for tinkering and self promotion (and not always in that order). Don't go playing the martyr.

Bingo... exactly... I agree with you. Village-idiot, average Joe, cowboy, trail-grub... "average person"... who was very fortunate to have lucked out in life and had a great happy-go-lucky lifestyle -- thanks to GD, Bear, Alembic and Ampex. I've said this many times.

"itmusthavebeen" -- not really -- For me, IT WAS!!

There are many content creators here at The Archive that share the same passion as me. Yes indeed, I am promoting "my values". Anyone is welcome to try removing "my name" and "my person" from my content, and focus instead on my points. You will see My Values are speaking.

Playing the martyr? I'd rather not, but -- yes, it's true. This is because I've said many, many times: "I'm taking my values to the grave with me. I am proud of them... loyalty..."

Me "playing the journalist" is more like it, and also becoming a punk-librarian. The digital content I created, uploaded, and posted to The Archive speak for themselves. For example...
